This will be my first review, so if you have any tips or something to say about this review, dont hesitate to message me! :)

I've completed the first season of Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuuutsu with mixed feelings about the series. I wasn't quite sure if I liked it or not. This second season definitely helped me to get a much better understanding of the series as a whole, which is a very good thing, not all second seasons do that.

When I started the second season, I didn't expect much of it, well, atleast not more than I expected from the first season. It started read more

okay so ill make this short because this was an anime i absolutely will never watch again or think about again.

-was mediocre. fair enough i didnt see them in chronological order which made it hard to keep watching, but i expect atleast the episode's to suprise me a little. boring boring boring.

- good art i have to say i liked it and it was almost the only uplifting point in the anime.


-now the characters were okay main was the one who i ofcourse liked the most because of his personality of being "smooth" or not fucking around like a twelve year old. the read more

I usually try to give a fair, as unbiased a review as I possibly can. But not this time. This is the 0.01% of the time where I'm going to purposefully express my hate for a show. And today that show is The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya 2. Or as I like to call it, "The Melancholy of The Fans of Haruhi Suzumiya".

In case you didn't know, "melancholy" refers to sadness or depression. Only instead of Haruhi being the sad and depressed one (as the show is about those around her trying to keep her spirits up), this time around it's our turn: the fans read more

Many people hate this 2nd season of Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuuutsu because of the Time Loop arc. It took up episodes 1-5 and were pretty much all the same, and I won't deny that. However, the buildup let to much more hype for me when the problem was finally solved, and I enjoyed the irony that it was solved in such a simple manner. The subtle differences between clothing, dialogue, and angle led me to take a deeper look at the personalities of each character. The rest of the season (episodes 6-14) is bound to be original and exciting, giving me new adventures of Haruhi read more

Anime: Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Kai
both main plot is about a part of the year that is repeated many many times and the main character have to discover how to stop the repetitions. The difference is that in Higurashi are shown the different repetitions and in Haruhi is only shown one repetition again and again

Anime: Higurashi no Naku Koro ni
The Endless Eight episodes will definitely bring back memories if you watch this excellent horror anime.

Higurashi has an eternal June, while the Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya had an eternal August.

Both are solved by the most simplest/unlikely of solutions.

As well, everyone will definitely enjoy how the end results of Higurashi actually DOES change (unlike in Endless Eight, where Yuki Nagato states how some things were omitted, but those changes where never actually animated).

Anime: Yojouhan Shinwa Taikei
the endless 8 ark in Haruhi goes back in time in each episode and Yojouhan Shinwa Taikei (or Tatami Galaxy) goes back in time in each episode both for a silly reason that the main character forgot to do something

in Haruhi no yuuutsu there aren't many changes but in Yojouhan Shinwa Taikei most of the episode is different

they also both give you that de ja vue feeling

Involve a repeat of time,somebody who remebers every timeline,and they are very good.

Episode one is another story, but part two of this interesting work shares many similar themes, particularly with the "Endless Eight" arc.

Anime: Kokoro Connect
Tales of high school a particular high school club, consisting of exactly 5 people (2 boys and 3 girls).

In both clubs, MCs investigate and ultimately resolve some supernatural occurrences.

Both focus on the relationship of members of the club.

*By Suzumiya (2009) I meant watching all 28 episode in the order aired on 2009.
